1/144 Scale Gingerbread Mansion is Complete!

After much studying this weekend for my school exam, and with no work, I had the rest of the Monday afternoon and evening to work on my Gingerbread Mansion and I finally finished it!

1/144 Scale Gingerbread Mansion!


The porch and the balcony was no problem, but the roof was tricky. I had to make sure the glue was invisible, however it was impossible for this one part of the roof which had an issue with the fitting. I struggled with it, so I got glue everywhere and now it looks messy and ugly. But the good thing is that you can't see it from the front.

Close up.

Back of the house, next to a quarter.


Overall, I'm very pleased with how it turned out!

The primary green platform is not very appealing, so I definitely will do something with it. I want to do some landscaping on it, but I have no idea what to do. Do you guys have any suggestions? Also, where would be a great place to look for landscaping stuff in this scale? Any info will be greatly appreciated! :-)



Thanks for reading everyone! Also I want to welcome all of my new followers! Have a great week!

  18. I love 1/144 houses! I need to make one too anytime soon :)
    Since you called it gingerbread houses, I'd make some snow on the ground and maybe some xmas decorations?
    Anyway it looks perfect!

  22. Stunning! Use moss on the base. It would look just like tiny bushes and you can get many varieties for different looks. A little dirt path. OK I'm stopping now. Have fun! It's already so beautiful though!
